Parabellum Courier Wallet – Fans of minimalism will really appreciate the new Courier Wallet from Parabellum. It’s about the same size of a bi-fold, but resembles more of a miniature zippered pouch. Under the premium hardware reveals a little compartment for cards and plenty of room for cash and coins. In addition to the heavy-duty zipper, Parabellum adds a snap-closure made from ceramic to secure your essentials. The Courier wallet retails for $200 and comes in over a dozen colors to choose from.

If you’re Jordan Brand you would take one of the best selling and beloved sneakers of all time and chop it in half. Not literally of course, but what is done here is pretty darn close. The Jordan 11 Black/Red is on the roster of best-looking sneaker of all time for a lot of sneakerheads, and it is now getting a low-top version. Like many of the original 11s that have been turned to low-cuts, this one will have the Jordan logo moved from the side collar on to the heel. I’ve never been a huge fan of revisiting a classic and chopping it down in size, but the Bred still manages to capture a lot of the magic of the original.

The new X900C Ultra Thin is the flagship televisions set in the Sony roster with a thickness at a hair under 0.2″ (that’s less than a pencil). In addition to its svelte size the 43 inch screen has a “Vanishing Edge” and the screen is designed to have almost no bezel; seamlessly blending into your wall. The best part is that it is nearly future proof with its ability to display 4K content. Source: Sony SOPHNET x Stussy – With summer right around the corner, SOPHNET gears up with a collaboration with Stussy. Old-school screen printing is the main ingredient for this project as the popular Stussy script is printed across a graphic T-shirt, hoodie, coaches jacket, and slip-on sandals. The co-branded gear keeps it clean and simple with offerings in black, heather grey, navy blue, white, and tan. Look for the small collection to be available in SOPHNET stores Friday, May 22.

WTAPS Spring/Summer 2015 Commander Caps – Spring and summer means more sun with streetwear brands stepping up their headwear game. Japan’s WTAPS is a fan favorite and this season sees a delivery of Commander caps. Based off of the familiar five panel silhouette, the Commander caps has a military approach with screen-printed sewn on patches. The nylon and polyester blend caps will have mil-spec style patches on the crown and temple, and available in coyote tan and navy blue.

The Japanese label teams up with the ALIFE crew to create a small collection of co-branded graphic T-shirts and shark hoodies. A noticeable part of the collection is BAPE’s 1st camouflage. As one of the brand’s most recognizable patterns, the print is often guarded from collaborations. Look for the collection to drop in stores Satruday, May 16.

The new Pro Primeknit uses a one-piece knit construction for superior fitting, and arrives with some premium welding at the toebox. There’s also additional cushioning and support at the heel for those that appreciate an aggressive skateboard sneaker. A subtle Palace logo at the tongue completes this collaborative project.
